Product Description

Product Description

SONS OF THE NORTH is the much anticipated debut album by the United Kingdoms very own rock juggernaut BLACK SPIDERS. Quite literally ten tracks of galloping rock and thunderous roll, heads down, no nonsense, ear splintering, gut wrenching organic, melodic goodness.The record caps a riotous 2 years in which they released single (St. Peter) and two acclaimed EPs ( Cinco Hombres, Diez Cojones and No Goats in the Omen ). Live, they excelled no, really becoming the talk at toilets and bars at festival sites across Europe including Download, Sonisphere, High Voltage, Bloodstock, iTunes and OzzFest to headline dates and special guest slots - Ozzy Osbourne, Airbourne& Volbeat among them. During this time the airwaves have been mildly saturated with their sound from BBC Radio1 and XFM s respective rock shows who both had live sessions - to BBC 6Music, Kerrang Radio, Planet Rock and the Rock Radio network. With Scuzz TV, Kerrang TV and NME TV on the video front. Magazines and the international internets paid them compliments that would make most bands blush. Classic Rock and Metal Hammer Magazines hailed them as Ones to Watch , Kerrang, Rock Sound, Big Cheese Magazines, Subba Cultcha and Thrash Hits all featured their gnarled but boyish good looks. Confirmed press & Radio : Covermounts on the Feb issues of Classic Rock, Rocksound &Metal Hammer!!! Kerrang review, Rock Sound review + Exposure feature, Metal Hammer 3 page Incoming feature + lead album review, Terrorizer Choice Cuts feature + album review, Classic Rock Magazine half page album review + ones to watch feature. Reviews in Art Rocker, Front, The Sun, The Quietus, Thrash Hits, Subba Cultcha. BBC Radio 1 Rock Show already playing tracks and a possible 2nd session / interview around release. XFM Rock Show, Planet Rock Radio, Rock Radio Manchester/Scotland/N.E/Yorkshire/South Wales all playing tracks. Kerrang Radio live session / interview around release.

BBC Review

If your idea of a perfect night out is straight into the pub after work, onto a gig in some flea-ridden basement off a stinking alley in the roughest part of town, and subsequently swinging by a late-night drinking hole where the shots flow freely and the jukebox pumps out nothing but riffs the size of cruise-liners while the barmaids flirt outrageously with anyone sporting a beard or ample tattoos – or, ideally, both – then, please: stop reading this immediately.

And get thee to a record store, to purchase the debut album by "the United Kingdom’s very own rock juggernaut" (press release words, there – but if they stick, why peel ‘em away?) Black Spiders. You will be as completely-not-disappointed as the time when Kerry from Slayer called you "dude", or when you picked Bruce Dickinson up a cup of sponsor-brand lager backstage at Massive Rock Festival of the Week, 2008. You will hear, and feel, the pure rock‘n’roll of this 10-track set from the very first seconds – which claim, confidently, "There’s a brand-new force in town." Brand-new, maybe not – this sort of liquor-and-lust, riffs-and-raunch fare has been peddled by many before. But Black Spiders have nailed the formula so well that Sons of the North is far from simple pastiche – it sounds zesty, fresh, even when its base elements are (surely!) at the very end of their recycling life.

The album’s success is a result of two very important factors. One, these musicians have a lot of history between them. Without naming past band names, they’ve known the lifestyle for a long time now, and each brings a wealth of experience to the table. And two, they’ve toured these songs hard, and the recorded versions are so super-tight you’d struggle to slip a size-zero model through the gaps between devil-horn lyricism and crunching lead guitars. Oh, and there’s an equally important third reason why Sons of the North should really connect with the head-banger masses: it’s a lot of fun. You don’t title a song KISS Tried to Kill Me if you’re without a sense of humour.

Duff from Guns N’ Roses reckons this lot are geniuses. Several rock magazines have awarded this album top marks. Frankly, if you’re not already parting with your cash, you don’t like boisterous booze-along anthems and have read this far by accident. Maybe there’s something wrong with your eyes. Sorry about that.

--Mike Diver
